A new series is coming to Disney+ on July 21 that gives an exclusive peek ‘behind the curtain’ of the most beloved attractions and destinations at Disney Parks and Resorts around the world, from Jungle Cruise to “it’s a small world” to the Haunted Mansion to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. 

“Behind the Attraction” is a 10-part series narrated by Paget Brewster that  delves into Disney Parks’ rich, amazing history using archival and never-before-seen footage and photographs to unveil how the attractions came to be and how they’ve been refined over the years as new ideas surface and technology evolves.

Hear the unique story behind each Castle at the Parks and learn how Disney Imagineers designed and built them and discover the intricacies of the transportation systems at each park, and how the iconic Disneyland Hotel came to be.

Including rare interviews with Walt Disney, each episode also features exclusive interviews with Disney Legends and dozens of past and present Imagineers, including Bob Weis, Jeanette Lomboy, Kim Irvine, Scott Trowbridge, Tom Fitzgerald, Scot Drake, Carmen Smith, Joe Rohde, and others who divulge insider secrets of the parks and how iconic Disney attractions were brought to life.

And today, we’re sharing a special look at the new poster art for the series:

  • July 21st is a Wednesday, not a Friday. Need to correct that last sentence. Can’t wait!

  • Yes, please! So looking forward to this one. May we please have more series like these and The Magic of Animal Kingdom? Perhaps an Epcot based series??? nudge, nudge…

  • More series like this, please! I’m also hoping for a season 2 of The Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

  • So looking forward to this series! I loved The Imagineering Story and was hoping for more series like that!
